Fronted by vocal acrobat King Diamond a chap who had a soft spot for Alice Cooperas evidenced by his use of makeup and on-stage theatricsthe Danish group combined the speed of Judas Priest with the doom of Black Sabbathand helped influence a legion of subsequent metal bands -- everyone from Metallica to Dimmu Borgir.
Due to their importance and influence, the group made a logical choice for a "best-of treatment" when Roadrunner Records began assembling such sets for their catalog artists of yesteryear. The track collection focuses on the group's early releases, 's Melissa's Don't Break the Oathand 's The Beginningthe latter just so happens to have been recorded during their "classic" period. Highlights include all five songs that Metallica later covered as part of their "Mercyful Fate" medley on 's Garage, Inc.
